There are so many things I love about Carmen and Jordan’s simply sweet Florida wedding. We can start with the film images, shot by Shipra Panosian Photography. Those bright blooms are tugging at my heart strings and how much do you love the idea of kicking off your heels during cocktail hour for some empanadas and Corona? Yum.Click to expand for more

Luke and Blair’s love story and engagement is so sweet, we just had to share: During the summer of 2008 I was living in Virginia and Luke was in Manhattan. I planned a trip to New York for a weekend to see my best friend from home and my dear friends from college—a real girls weekend that included a trip to the Hamptons. Saturday afternoon found us at Cyril’s– a restaurant on a 2 lane highway that at about 4:00 p.m. becomes THE place to see and catch up with all of your Southern friends who live in New York, or, like me, were just visiting the Hamptons. And there I saw him–tall and handsome. Although we had gone to college an hour away from one another in Virginia, had both attended the Carolina Cup horse races for years in his South Carolina hometown, and had a zillion friends in common, it was not until June 2008 that we actually met one another. It was love at first sight. Luke proposed on a Tuesday evening. Just us. The best surprise of my life and the reason that I now love Tuesdays the most. Later that evening, we met all of our friends at the Soho Grand hotel to celebrate. They all knew and had been waiting for the announcement—it was such a dear surprise and one of the best memories of my life.
